Darwin -- A Racist!

Did you know that evolutionists rarely discuss Charles Darwin's racist ideas?

Darwin stated that certain races were more primitive or "apelike" than others. This "scientific" belief has led to many racist attitudes toward certain people groups over the years.

It has been said that Darwin's book On The Origin of Species (1859) is second only to the Bible in influencing the way people think about life. But do you know the full title of Darwin's book? It's:

"On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life."

Darwin later expanded on his "races" idea in the book The Descent of Man."

Most people aren't aware that evolution, as Dr. Charles Ware and I share in our new book Darwin's Plantation, is inherently a racist philosophy. Most evolutionists would like to hide this fact, but it's true nonetheless.

Still, there are some evolutionists who admit to their Darwinian-based beliefs about the races. In a book by a Canadian author entitled Race, Evolution and Behavior, this professor actually ranks the different people groups along an evolutionary scale, with blacks at the bottom and Asians at the top.

It is only the Bible that teaches the truth about humans; we are all one race, for we are all descendants of Adam (Acts 17:26 & Genesis 1).

Thank you for your comment... not only do our public schools propagate this, it has gotten worse since this post was written. Just look at the fundamentals of evolution... the weak must died so the strong can reproduce improving the race. What governments can you think of that had a policy like that? What was the result?

I'm no expert on evolution or Darwin but I fail to see how anything you have said in your article makes Darwin or evolution itself racist. Everything that I read about Darwin shows that he was against slavery and viewed black people with high regard.
Also, my understanding of evolution is that it isn't "the weak must died so the strong can reproduce improving the race" like the poster above me said, it's not even about making a species "better", it's just those that are most suited to changes in there enivorment are the ones that typically live longer and pass on there genes more, it dosen't mean that this must happen only that is has happened.
And even if Darwin was a racist, how would that have any effect on any scientific work based on evidence, if Isaac Newton was racist would that make gravity invalid?

"At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world." - Charles Darwin, Descent of Man, page 156

Until Charles Darwin came along races were thought of as based on nationality... not skin color. There was the English Race, the Irish race, etc. It was Darwin, defining them as inferior savage races, that introduced racism based on skin color.

It is true that Darwin opposed slavery, but he also believed dark-skinned people to be inferior and that they would ultimately be replaced by superior whites. Isn't that racism?

Why the rush to defend a man who separated people by skin color, and condemned those with darker skin as inferior savages?

What about the science? The big problem is that evolution is still an unproven theory. Science based on evolution is accepted if by chance it works out and ignored if it doesn't work out. That's not science. The biggest impact Darwin's works has been on the human race -- racism, eugenics and the slaughter of tens of millions of people.
